Communication and Interaction:
Please continue to share the social story about our new school with your child throughout the time. Regularly revisiting the photos will help embed this change and support the children in learning places and names.
Cognition and Learning:
All the children will need to adjust to a more structured routine after a fun summer. It would be helpful for the children if you could continue to/increase your use of now and next at home whether using visuals or verbally so that children understand what is happening now and what will happen next.
Physical and Sensory:
We will be working in school at building independence in toileting, dressing, feeding etc... at home you can extend this by providing opportunities for your child to take more a role in their self care. This can be a very small step like pulling up their trousers independently or a bigger step such as sitting at the table to eat their dinner.
Social, emotional and mental health:
We will be sharing our support strategies for joint and self regulation with you as the year goes on. However please do ring/email me if you are having an specific regulation difficulties at home with your child and I will do my best to support you with strategies and ideas.
